We propose to develop Cyber RAMPART as an extensible and customizable training delivery tool with near-term transition potential. It will offer shipboard operations personnel the opportunity to develop foundational cyber awareness knowledge and skill that prepares them to participate in their ship’s cyber defense mission and to hit the ground running in future fleet-level exercises that include cyber events. Cyber RAMPART, as designed in Phase I of this effort, consists of two independent modules, a Motivation Module and a Practice Module. Each module consists of flexibly accessed elements to facilitate self-regulated learning and to ensure that training can take place at the designated place and time. The training system will feature both training strategies and an overarching framework that are soundly rooted in learning research and theory. The modules and their elements together target sixteen training objectives identified during our Phase I research as supporting a cyber awareness mindset among operations personnel.
